Sasha Hansley hates Christmas. As a child, it was her favourite time of year, but ever since the tragic death of her mother, it has completely lost its magic.

But when she gets an unexpected phone call from her eccentric estranged father, she’s forced to dust off her snow boots.

For years, ever since her mother died, Sasha has wanted to recapture the love of Christmas she experienced as a child by spending the holiday with her father, but every year he’s having adventures in some far flung destination and uses it as an excuse not to come home. She was expecting another such joyless festive season, compounded by the fact she just lost her job, when she has an unexpected phone call from her father.

Welcome to another Throwback Thursday with a festive read from 2017.

My Thoughts

I hadn’t realised this was a sequel so I had a quick recap of the first book which gave me enough background to become involved with the characters and the story, without actually having read the previous book.

#ThrowbackThursday ~ A Cosy Candlelit Christmas by Tilly Tennant #Contemporary #Romance

I know, it’s only October but I love Christmas themed stories and really enjoyed this book when it was released in 2017.

My Thoughts

Isla McCoy is twenty nine, living at home with her mother and studying psychology. She can’t remember her father as her parents’ marriage broke down when she was five years old and she didn’t see her father again. Being brought up solely by Glory, her mother, who is still bitter and unable to make peace with her father after twenty odd years, has left a long term impression on Isla and influenced the potential for romantic relationships. She finds it difficult to form lasting relationships and tends to keep men at arm’s length, always expecting to be let down.
